My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: Screw top gallon jugs

Screw top gallon jugs
Anybody know where I can find screw top plastic gallon jugs like the old kind? I know they exist but now sure where. Maybe Safeway. Walmart has them in the blue jugs too.

Re: Dash vs. Double Rainbow
Length and shoulder room should be taken with grain of salt since once you set it up that bathtub floor can effectively lessen those dimensions.
